Children's electric scooters have enjoyed great popularity in the past year - so much so us adults want a go, too. Xiaomi has the answer with its folding electric scooter, which is an awful lot of fun.
The new M365 Pro. It looks the same, but is slightly larger, has a more powerful motor (for better uphill performance) and a much bigger battery for a huge 45km range.
Most electric scooters these days look like plasticky, bulkier versions of the old-school scooters with which we're all familiar, and they can be pretty noisy. Kids reach speeds usually between around 8mph and 14mph, but with little control over their acceleration (or much else, it would often appear).
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter is more refined. It can travel up to 45km, but the exact distance depends on how fast you go), and at up to 25km/hour. It does so almost completely silently, too.
A mobile app lets you track everything from the remaining battery life and distance to your average speed and controls for acceleration and cruise control. You can lock 25km speed down to 15 or 20k . Also you can demobilise battery to lock, so great for anti theft.
Yep, cruise control. On an electric scooter. This one also has a kinetic energy recovery system and disk brakes (on the rear - at the front is an E-ABS braking system), which can shorten braking distance to just 4m.
Plus there's a headlight and flashing rear brake light. The headlight is powerful enough to actually see where you're going at night, too. Bonus.
Large 8.5in inflatable tyres mean the Xiaomi Electric Scooter can handle some offroading, and certainly low- to medium drop kerbs (but be careful). More importantly, it feels very stable in use, and you quickly get used to cornering and getting up speed.
A high-capacity 18,650mAh (280Wh) battery means it's unlikely to run out of juice mid-play or halfway to your destination. When it comes to recharging we found it achieved roughly 20 percent per hour, so should fully charge from empty in five- to six hours.
Everyone who tried this scooter wanted to take it home with them. It really is the toy that lets adults be kids again, and to do so in style.
